Happy Halloween!

Ushering in our Halloween weekend, the C.E. Weldon Library in Martin is hosting a Great Pumpkin Party this Friday, October 30 beginning at 3 p.m. for all Weakley County kids, ages Pre-K through 5th grade.

Kids get to have so much fun on holidays.  This party promises that little ones will get to play games, listen to Halloween stories, win door prizes and participate in a carved pumpkin contest.  According to Sabrina Exum, Director of Children’s Library Services, children who want to participate in the contest should bring their decorated or carved pumpkin to the library by 3:15 on Friday.   Winners will be announced at 3:30, and there will be prizes.

The kids will also get to trick-or-treat at area businesses during the Great Pumpkin Parade downtown.  Parents or older siblings will have to accompany their little “monster”, and Sabrina says to make sure to wear costumes to make it even more fun.

The weather forecast suggests we may be in for a bit of wet weather on Friday.   If so, Sabrina says the inside activities will still go on as planned, and the staff will make the call on the parade activity that afternoon.   The event is co-sponsored the UTM division of STEA and the Martin Historic Business District Association.

Happy Halloween!
